Listening

Why, and how, should I listen to English? 
  • Listening to English will help you to improve your vocabulary knowledge, comprehension skill and grammar awareness. 
  • You can hear English the way it is naturally spoken and choose from different topics and types of listening. 
  • Listen regularly - every day, if you can. You only need to listen for a short time. 
  • Don't worry about what you can't understand - focus on what you can, starting with identifying the topic, names or places that you hear. 
  • Listen to different things: to the news and to topic areas that will help you to build useful words and knowledge, but also to things that are just fun or entertaining! 
  • Try including some listening exercises for English learners, which ask you to answer some questions.
  • The daily news is always a good, short listening exercise. If your listening skill is not very good at the moment, try listening to the news in your own language first, and then listening to it later in English. It could help you to understand more information.
  • ...And finally, don't be afraid of listening. It's true that some people speak quickly, not very clearly or have strong accents. However, regular practice will help you; whether you are in the UK, listening to the language around you, or doing the same online.
 
Enjoy your listening!
